The ELEMENT is a big step for automation that thrives in even the tightest spaces. Maximize your machine's potential, even in a small shop with limited floor space.LEARN MORE
A good automation system is one of the most effective ways for any machine shop to reliably send more finished products out the door than ever before.
With an industry-leading 52-second (3015) load/unload cycle time, this machine is quick. That’s why we named this automated sheet loader, the SmartFlex RAPID.
With intelligent, fully independent load and unload units that can easily support up to four lasers on the same line, and with dual-automated SmartStation carts for both load and unload—each capable of supporting 11,000 lbs. of raw material or finished goods—the SmartFlex RAPID is as powerful and versatile as it is fast.
SmartFlex RAPID packs all the punch you need to make your dreams of quick, reliable, cost-efficient production a reality.
Our RAPID Tower maintains all of the advanced features and speed of our RAPID Base with the added ability to store an incredible amount of raw material with a standard 8 shelves. It can be configured with as many as 46 shelves with multiple towers and can be serviced by up to 3 lasers on a single line.
With the addition of the SmartFlex RAPID tower, we are impressed with what we can run through our system. Before automation, we ran 60 to 70 sheets through with a two-minute cycle time. That didn't give us enough time to clear the tables fast enough, but we no longer have that problem.Jake Wieler, Co-founder Custom Quality Manufacturing (CQM)
